BEIJING, May 31, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) — The communist rulers of China have told their population that they may now have three children, reversing its long-time one child policy, which only a few years ago became a two children policy. The Communist Party of China, which is synonymous with the Chinese government, made the announcement after census data revealed that the birth rate is still plummeting.

Concerned about the greying of its ethnic majority population, in 2016 China relaxed its infamous one child policy to allow two children. However, despite a small, immediate rise, this has not led to a lasting trend.

According to the BBC, a census published earlier this month showed that “around 12 million” babies were born in China last year, the lowest number of births recorded since the 1960s. This is down from the 18 million babies born in China in 2016.

David Mulroney, a Canadian former ambassador to China, told LifeSiteNews that there are “no winners” after China’s Malthusian attempt, beginning in 1978, to stop its population from growing.

“China’s four-decade war on the family ends without any winners,” Mulroney said. “For forty years, the state has visited violence on its people, born and unborn, in the name of population control, only to arrive now at an emerging demographic disaster.”

“As the number of seniors approaches 20% of the population, economic growth is tailing off and healthcare costs are skyrocketing. Having ruthlessly suppressed any consideration other than economics, China’s leaders are finding that it is precisely on economic grounds that many young Chinese women are declining to have any children at all.”

The BBC reported that Chinese citizens who grew up without brothers and sisters do not value the idea of having more than one or two children, thinking them too much trouble or too expensive to maintain. As Chinese people increasingly move from the countryside, where children are valued for their ability to help in farming, to the cities, they see children more as economic liabilities.

But Mulroney doesn’t blame atheistic communism for China’s loss of love for bigger families. He blames a western “anti-life” ideology that still wreaks havoc today.

“Western countries, which introduced population control theory to China in the 1960s and 70s, are now visiting this anti-life obsession on countries in Africa, in partnership with the abortion industry and funded with our tax dollars,” he said.

The Biden Administration has incredibly given permission to U.S. embassies to fly the Black Lives Matter (BLM) flag alongside the American flag for the rest of the year.

This order is an outrageous and insulting affront to American identity and sovereignty, and must be rescinded immediately!

Please SIGN this petition to demand that U.S. embassies around the world fly the American flag ONLY!

According to a leaked memo, quoted below and published by Human Events News on Monday, U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken urged embassies to push Black Lives Matter messaging and authorized them to "hang BLM flags" "for calendar year 2021."

"As outlined below, Chiefs of Mission may decide to hang BLM flags, as appropriate and depending on local context. This cable constitutes a blanket written authorization for calendar year 2021 from the Under Secretary for Management (M) to display the BLM flag on the external-facing flagpole to any Chiefs of Mission."

"The Department supports the use of the term ‘Black Lives Matter’ in messaging content, speeches, and other diplomatic engagements with foreign audiences to advance racial equity and access to justice on May 25 and beyond. We encourage posts to focus on the need to eliminate systemic racism and its continued impact."

Of course, eliminating racism is a positive thing, but NOT by promoting the Black Lives Matter organization or movement which have been linked to the following radical actions and ideas:

  • Violent protests and the general destabilization of our society
  • Defunding of our police departments
  • The overthrow of the nuclear family
  • Perpetual marxist revolution

Only a miniscule proportion of the American population supports the radical ideology and actions of the BLM organization and movement. In fact, polling shows that a strong majority of Americans believe that "All Lives Matter," rather than just the lives of just one race of Americans.

The Biden Administration's promotion of this Leftist symbolism and ideology is both dangerous and deliberately misleading.

And, it is the worst kind of virtue signaling, as the message being sent to the rest of the world is: "Get on board with the radical, marxist and revolutionary ideology of the BLM organization and movement if you want a favorable response from the United States government."

This kind of cultural imperialism and coercion is downright insulting to our allies and partners abroad.

But, it also demonstrates how the current U.S. administration is beholden to the radical leftist element of the Democratic Party -- which is downright insulting to most average Americans.

Please SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition demanding that the U.S. Department of State rescind permission to fly the BLM flag at U.S. embassies around the world.

Then, please CONTACT the Department of State by email or by telephone, to politely, but firmly, demand that only the U.S. flag, and not the BLM flag, be flown at U.S. diplomatic installations.

The State Department may be contacted by email at this webpage: https://register.state.gov/contactus/contactusform

The Office of the Secretary of State may be contacted at this telephone number: 202-647-4000

China’s anti-child policies have led not only to mass contraception, but to forced sterilization and forced abortion. Until recently, China’s minority populations have been exempted from the one-child, and then the two-children, policy. However, in the past decade, intensifying four years ago, the Chinese government has pursued what critics call a “genocidal” policy towards its Muslim Uighur minority population. China has been forced to admit that it has been running so-called “re-education” camps for Uighur people, and there are many reports that a million or more Uighurs have been imprisoned in them. The majority Chinese population, called the Han, make up 92% of the country’s population.
